    Back in March I suggested to my Boss and the owner of the company that we start setting quarterly marketing plans with hopes of setting a yearly marketing plan as of OCT 1st (the beginning of our new fiscal year)

    to accomplish this we have a big meeting 1 month before the beginning of each quarter to go over what we've done/are doing for that quarter, what we want/need to accomplish the next quarter and our tentative plans for the qtr after that.

    In this meeting the owner refuses to stay on track with the agenda and continues to go off about his "idea he had this weekend" and wants to get it done now. A few weeks ago we had one of these meetings and we were eventually able to get things planned out (with me being the only designer, web guy, photographer, marketing, advertising, copywriting, misc guy here it's very beneficial to have things planned out. Because of a lot of things my schedule is essentially jammed through the next week or so. I then get this email today from the owner.

    (i've copied and pasted so the professional grammar is his)

    "we've have to take out a 4x4 or 4x8 ad in XXXXXXXX magazine and the art needs to be into them by the 10th, we should meet around the 6th or earlier and talk about what we'd want to do with it"

    AGHGHHGHGHG!!!!! sorry, it's been a bad day so far, so I just needed to vent.
    You see, whenever I start feeling sick, I just stop being sick and be awesome instead. True story.

            It's just what I call it when people use an expression that actually says or means the opposite of what is intended; ''could care less'' would be another prime example.

            That makes sense, I guess. Off is the inverse of on, which makes based off the inverse of based on. Got it. ...

            Okay, I know what a colloquialism is, but what is an inverse colloquialism?

            Probrien, in addition to HotButton's comments, which I agree with, the ad is a bit confusing. Maybe it's lacking...

            ''Based off'' is inverse of ''based on.'' ''Based on'' is a colloquialism.
            I think.
            I have not had enough to drink to play this game.

            Thanks for the feedback. That all makes a lot of sense. I'll take these points and re-work things....
